About Down's Syndrome : Tim

Down's syndrome







Down's syndromeMy name is Tim. I am 23 years old and I live in Cheshire. I work for Timpson Ltd at their head office in Wythenshawe.
I got my first pay cheque this week. It was great. I now have my own bank account and card. I can save money and spend money. The first thing I did was take some money out using my card and brought a round of drinks for my family and friends!

Down's syndromeI need to wear smart clothes, be punctual and work hard. Best thing about Timpson is the people who work there and help if I get stuck on anything.

My boss is Les. We call him the “Podmaster.”

Down's syndromeLast week we went out on a staff social to Belle Vue dog track. It was brilliant.

Timpson are a very good company, they really look after their staff. There is a gym where I work out after work before I go home. There is also a pool table and a table tennis table to play on at lunch break.
